She's just released her fifth book, the sequel to Guilty as Charged [see my review HERE]. This one is called Shattered Dreams [and my review HERE], both of them published by Sugar and Spice Press. Here is a little more about it:
Natalie and Reed seemed so happy when they got married just a few short months ago. But an unexpected pregnancy and a subsequent miscarriage throw their marriage into turmoil. Natalie deals with the loss by burying herself in work. Reed is supportive but doesn’t understand why she is spending so much after-hours time with her handsome, sexy boss. And what about their dream of having a family? How can that happen when with each passing day Natalie becomes more distant?
Will Reed and Natalie find a way to work things out or will all their dreams be shattered?
So, Anna, at our last interview in June, you had just released Visions, an erotic paranormal novella. Have your readers enjoyed that one?

How about your non-writing life--what's been happening since June?
I have been traveling around the US for the last few months for my day job, I got to take a short vacation on Cape Cod and short vacation in NYC.
You also have a third book coming that takes place after Shattered Dreams, right? Can you tell us about that one?
I'm always impressed with such prolific writers. At this time in my life, I'm lucky to get a sentence written without interruption. Since you first started, do you feel like the writing process is easier now? What would you tell other busy women who find it hard to sit down long enough to write anything of length?
Let me first say that I still get interrupted all the time! Now, to answer your questions, as far as finding time to write, I'd say yes it's easier to sit down and find time to write now that my children are older, however, I have also gone back to work full time since my children have gotten older so there are still constraints on my time. Sometimes weeks can go by between times when I write although I make a consertited effort not to let that happen. And there's more than just writing involved. There's edits and the promotional side of things. These also take away from writing time and I find it to be a huge balancing act. My advice to busy women is to "just do it" even if you only write a paragraph or two in one sitting. Keep at it and before you know it you'll have a story.
You know I have to throw in my semi-famous random question. This one's good. What did you ask Santa for this year, and do you think you'll get it?
Finally, could you please share an excerpt from Shattered Dreams?
I'm so happy you came back, Anna! I wish you the best, and stop in again anytime!
Thanks so much for having me at Unwritten again. I always enjoy coming here!
